The Lostine Tavern is closed until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience. Here is our story:

In June 2014 we renovated Lostine Tavern, offering locally raised and crafted foods to the local, and visiting community.  The last two years have been successful, and the business has grown and been widely embraced by the local and visiting communities.  Our vision was to create and establish something meaningful for the community.  We have done that, and now would like to turn that over to someone with the passion, knowledge and skill to continue to provide the local and visitor communities with exceptional hospitality, food and drink.

In addition to the tavern, (which is located in a beautiful, two story stone building built in 1910), we also own the building next door, (also built in the early 1900's),  which we are in the process of converting to a 10 bed hostel.

For the right person/organization this would be an amazing, "turn-key" opportunity, at a fraction of the cost they would experience starting from ground zero, with all the pieces of the puzzle in place to step in, and make it happen.

The History of

Lostine in the Wallowas

The Lostine Tavern is an historic building in the town of Lostine, Oregon, population 203. It was built in 1900 from locally quarried Bowlby stone by E.L McKenzie as a pharmacy and doctor's office. It also housed a Masonic Lodge and became the town tavern in the 1940s. It has long been a social center for this ranching and farming community. In restoring the building, the current owners strived to continue the legacy of this landmark gathering place. It was listed in November 2014 on the National Register of Historic Places.

Our Farms and Ranches

The Wallowas have supported farming and ranching for generations of families. We are lucky to have the agricultural riches of these lands to build our menu and to feed the best food to everyone who stops into the LT.

  • Carman Ranch, Wallowa OR

    All of our fantastic grassfed beef patties for the LT burger and several other menu staples come from this ranch operated by Cory Carman & Dave Flynn, pre-eminent grassland ranchers in the Wallowas.

  • Prairie Creek Farm, Joseph OR

    Spectacular beets, carrots and especially potatoes—for our French fries—come from this premier organic farm.

    Three sisters run this pasture-based operation raising succulent chickens often featured on our dinner specials.
